Being Thankful (and crafty)

I actually decorated for Thanksgiving. OK, I don't know if you can really call it decorating if it's just one little thing, but it does makes things seem more festive. And not a moment too soon since Thanksgiving is in two days!

I stole this idea and modified it from spymommy's blog (I was way too lazy to cut out leaves, so we just did rubber stamps). The girls had a great time crafting with the rubber stamps (thanks, Katie, for loaning them to us) and then we wrote in what we were thankful for as a Family Home Evening activity last night.

Dan (participating via speakerphone from his office and Lily as scribe) is thankful for:

  • Sue
  • Lily
  • Amelia
  • Mistre (Mystery) Boy
  • His job
  • His leg heling (healing)

I am thankful for:

  • Amelia's smiles and Lily's hugs
  • Dan working so hard so I can be a stay-at-home mom
  • Living in Cokeville
  • Blogs and staying in touch with loved ones on the internet

Lily is thankful for:

  • Blessings
  • Famile (family)
  • Helth (health)
  • World (Jesus created the world, you know)
  • Jesus
  • House
  • School
  • Mistr Hach (Mr. Hatch, her teacher)
  • Food
  • Drinks
  • Myself
  • Books

Amelia is thankful for:

  • Biggie
  • Mama
  • Daddy
  • Baby Brother
  • Binky and Woobie
  • Horses and Cows
  • Playing in the wood pile
  • Grandparents
  • Books and Movies

Sue your so crafty. I love both of those, I may have to copy you. We'll see you in a couple of days! And I have a bunch of little boy clothes for you as well.

What makes your craftiness shine is the beautiful photograph of your kids.

And look how much you have to be thankful for!

Have a super Thanksgiving Sue!
